Recognizing the immense generosity of worldwide tabletop wargamers, the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation was formed to bring this “Compassionate Force” together under a single banner with a broad outreach to support charities which address the needs of humanitarian emergency relief, children’s causes, military families, and medical research.
The NOCF “Australian Koalas” raised $3,000 (AUD 4,500) for Wildlife Rescue (WIRES). We received a very nice hand-written thank you from them for your donation. The Tabletop Wargaming and Hobby Community ROCKS! CLICK ON HEADER FOR LINK TO LETTER. WIRES DONATION LETTER 3.2.2020
NOCF joins Roman Lappat in thanking all who participated in this Special 2020 Raffle to raise both awareness of the Australian Bushfire crisis, and a $3,000 contribution to WIRES. The drawing was held at noon today and the winner has been notified via email: CONGRATULATIONS to PHILLIP WALSH, a resident of the United Kingdom!
The bushfires in Australia have captured the hearts of people around the world, challenging all of us to wonder what we can do to help. In our tabletop wargamer and miniature hobbyist communities, it is no different. Last week, Roman Lappat reached out with a wonderful fundraising idea to benefit the relief efforts currently underway. NOCF is happy to announce and participate in this collaborative effort with him. Special 2020 Raffle: “Australian Koalas”
